Maldon to Witham Railway Line - Statement

Published on Friday, 19th June 2020

Statement by Cllr Adrian Fluker, Leader of Maldon District Council regarding the Maldon to Witham railway line.

Cllr Adrian Fluker, Leader of Maldon District Council, said; “Following the announcement by the Prime Minister that a Beeching reversal fund had been created, the Council have taken the opportunity, with the support of our local Members of Parliament and Essex County Council to make an application to the fund.  This is at a very early stage, but if the Council is successful in receiving funding from the Government, it will enable us to explore in more detail, the possibility of reopening the former railway line, which runs to Witham, and undertake public engagement on any proposals when we know more.”
